I'll need a stiff drink with that

Mom has been trying to feed the kids edamame which is lightly steamed soybeans. Alice and Corwin liked them, Corwin particularly, but Charles says “I can’t eat them!” in his most plaintive tone. Mom makes him eat them anyway, even though one time I had to pick them off his plate, put them in his mouth, and then help work his jaw to get them down. Most recently Charles has become obsessed with counting how many he has to eat (imagine that!). To make this easier, he popped all the beans out of their husks and arranged them in a rectangular array on his plate. Honestly, though, it didn’t seem to help. Charles still had to wash all 18 of them down with multiple glasses of milk.
